lotte2BCC has been selected by the Lotte Duty Free Main Store retail concession areas and associated airport improvements to include twelve each “white box” spaces for future “Brand Stores”. These white boxes were completed as part of the phase two milestone in March of 2014. Tenant fit-out for each “Brand” included:

  • Tory Burch
  • Coach
  • Burberry
  • Bally
  • Bvlgari
  • Ferragamo
  • Tumi
  • Chloe
  • Loewe

BCC worked closely with the Prime Architect, Brand Merchandisers, Millwork suppliers and designated Lotte representatives to purchase and coordinate shipping, arrival clearance, warehousing and delivery of Millwork, store and brand fixtures including all “OFCI items in advance of each boutique construction. As documents for each Brand Store became available BCC priced and contracted for the individual boutique store as part of the program agreement between Lotte and each “Brand” store. Black Construction Corporation was the prime contractor for each boutique tenant fit-out including installation of all millwork, fixtures and furnishings and equipment. BCC was instrumental in coordination and implementation of Land Lord furnished Mechanical and Electrical components as provided for each boutique.

Significant problems experienced on this project?

Black Construction Corporation contracted with Lotte Duty Free to perform tenant improvement work in accordance with the Project(s) design for 9 (nine) individual “Brand” boutique stores at the Guam International Airport Authority concourse (departure) level.

The on-site tenant fit out work was a relatively small part of the overall effort to complete these nine stores. Each “Brand” had separate millwork suppliers, merchandisers, and Lotte representatives for furnishing millwork, fixtures and finishes from many far reaching locations. All communications between these parties was mostly via

E-mail, documents and drawings that were many times superseded and outdated with regard to construction and the most current information.

BCC, on behalf of Lotlotte3te purchased the millwork, fixtures and finish materials for all OFCI (Owner Furnished Contractor Installed) Materials. Nearly all of these materials were purchased up front by BCC via wire transfer to ensure manufacture was synchronous with the construction schedule. Purchasing and Coordination for nine different stores and multiple vendors per store required BCC to amalgamate efforts through accounting, warehousing, logistics and engineering to a much greater extent beyond the prime contractor’s role. Many of these stores were in design, procurement and construction concurrently with completion dates culminating within days of each other. In many cases the entire millwork package was shipped via airfreight to meet schedule completion dates. Logistics presented challenges associated with both schedule and airport access. The short schedule durations required air freight of most finish materials not locally available. Materials were landed, cleared and received at BCC’s warehouse in preparation for coordination and delivery to the GIAA loading docks. Delivery and navigation to the concourse level and each individual boutique required precise coordination with Vendors, Merchandisers, Lotte and airport operations for delivery and use of service elevators. BCC worked closely with each project team to communicate efforts on each store at every phase of the project to completion. BCC’s expertise in the areas of purchasing, logistics, scheduling, and project management served this most difficult series of multiple project coordination well. Each project was scheduled to completion utilizing primavera’s P-6 to integrate each project schedule into an overall project schedule for the entire scope of work including the Main Contract work. This allowed the Owner to gain a high level overview of all work at each phase as well as individual areas of work such as the “Brand” Stores.
